Special Guest & Feature: “Crossing the Channel”

2016 Anacapa solo swimmer Rachel Horn was featured in a documentary film by Ryan Slattery, Crossing the Channel. An Official Selection at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, it’s a beautiful and inspiring look at one woman’s journey to reach the other shore.

We’re honored to have Rachel join us as a special guest to present the film.
